School - Chemistry Class

Postby Shinula » Sat Sep 17, 2011 5:58 am

Not an active rp

Spoiler: show
OOC stuff here:
Okay, so well, because I am an idiot, I'm once again posting in forums instead of sleeping. Anyway anyway, stuff. Hopefully this won't end miserably as I've never tried to start a forum RP before.

Setting: Ponyville School House.

Characters allowed: Any. Ideally foals as students. Characters need not be listed or described anywhere previously. Completely randomly generated characters for this sole occasion are acceptable.
Use of multiple characters are also acceptable.

Additional: This schedule is what this RP is about. While not required, it can be treated as 'consistent' with RP in the chat, and possibly with other forum RP.



ImageShinula
It's 12:13 on a Tuesday exactly and the school is currently at Lunch break, and the students are likely playing games outside, possibly involving rubber balls, play-ground equipment, dolls, and maybe in the case of some students, sticks and mud.
Regardless of this fact, Shinula sits at the teachers desk, not eating lunch, nor playing, but rather waiting for her very first class to arrive and unfold.
Behind her, on the chalk board, where most teachers would have written their name to introduce themselves to the class, is a layer of chalk covering the whole board, consisting of her own small, simple but very neat writing, conveying what might be unnecessary amounts of information, given the age of the children. Beside the board is a stand, with what is effectively a stack of large papers, and a texta sitting below them, ready for additional information.
There also appears to be a few bags and boxes on the floor behind the desk, containing various things Shinula thought she might possibly need.

Shinula continues to sit at the desk, staring straight ahead and waiting. She eventually turns, and checks the clock. 12:20. While not at all impatient, she is very excited on the inside, although her face would tell otherwise, or rather, nothing at all.
She decides to occupy herself, by double checking the formulas that she has already put up, and then setting up some of the equipment, eventually making the teachers desk look like a glass blower with hiccups went crazy and decided to leave odd shaped flasks and tubes around.
After doing so, she goes back to sitting at the desk, not moving as she waited for the students to return from lunch.

Kelly was the first to enter class. She was angry and had eaten lunch all alone today. She sat down on the last row of benches. Kelly just sat there not making eye contact with anypony and she did not greet Shinula when she came in.

Image: Shinula watched Kelly enter the class room, and after the filly sat down, she looked to the door to see if any other students would enter. Perhaps the were cleaning up their toys or packing away their unfinished lunch, like a good student should.
Shinula looks to Kelly again, and then says, "Ah, hello. Name?", as she picks up the attendance list. "Also, can filly see from back of room? Suggest closer seating, to board."

Kelly looked up at Shinula with an angry look but tried to hide it immediately. "Kelly." She sighed and sat down at the first row on the right. She may have been angry but she was still an obedient filly.

Silver Spoon certainly wouldn't enter class alone after lunch/recess. As she trotted toward the schoolhouse with several others, she giggled, "Could you believe that one filly? Eating lunch by herself - it's like she hates ponies or something! So WEIRD!" She stopped as she enters the class and an evil smirk crossed her face as she looked arrogantly toward Kelly Mix, "Oh, speaking of which. Sorry, you can eat lunch alone, but you can't learn alone, too. You're totally going to have to SHARE the classroom with the rest of us, blank flank!"

She continued into the classroom and sat toward the middle of class.

Kelly just stared at Silver Spoon. She didn't mind being called a blank flank especially since she isn't the only one in class without a cutie mark. She just thought Silver was unbearably obnoxious. Kelly just did what Sleepy told her to do if you can't say anything nice about another. [ Just smile and say nothing. ] And that's exactly what she did. Kelly gave Silver Spoon a warm smile before looking back at her desk. She grabbed a pencil and paper and began drawing Silver Spoon being eaten by a dragon. She wasn't that sad anymore thanks to Silver.

Image: nods to Kellly, and then places a circle next to her name on the list. "Ah, Kelly." she says to herself, before turning her head and watching Silver Spoon and her entourage, enter.

She blinks and stares for a moment, before looking down at her 'personal' notes on How to be a Good Teacher.
Apparently she should aim to prevent conflict amongst students, so she looks back and says, "Ah, glad filly promote sharing of class room, but perhaps not appropriate to call class-mate, ah, blank flank. Also, please tell Shinula names, for list.", before tapping the paper with said list on it.
She had never once been called a blank-flank in all her life, so the significance was sadly lost on her, but she was familiar with name calling amongst students, admittedly older ones, having earned various titles and insults, all involving her stripes and heritage. Being told to lie down on a road so that pedestrians could cross was amongst them.

She noticed that Kelly had already begun with paper and pencil, but she didn't appear to be writing. She tilted her head to try and see it better, and then realised it was actually a drawing. Of Silver Spoon being eaten by a dragon. She stopped herself from pointing out the anatomical errors with the dragon, and decided to just look back to Silver Spoon and await a reply from her and her friends.

Turbo runs into the classroom and leaps he hoof springs over his desk to land in his seat in the second row. He's excited that they'll be blowing something up with some cool chemicals today.

Rave trots in after Turbo and sits at his desk right next to him. He recognises Kellymix and Kelpy Blue and waves to them. He doesn't know who the hay Silver spoon is yet...

"I don't see the problem - she IS a blank flank," Silver giggled before nodding toward Miss Shinula, "I forgot they had all new teachers this year. I'm, like, Silver Spoon. It's nice to meet you and whatever."

After being redirected by a teacher, Kelpy made her way into the classroom. She rolled to the front, where there was the most space for her. She had been by herself at lunch as well, but didn't seem terribly upset about it. She wasn't sure what chemistry class was, but that's why she's here at school! She recognized Shinula and smiled softly.

Image: Shinula watches more foals enter, and she nods to them and says, "Ah, hello. Names please, for attendance list. Please refrain, jumping over desk, hazardous. Injure self and/or possibly other"
She looks to Silver Spoon and says, "Ah, true, however please address classmate by name: Kelly. Also, mutual."
She looks to Kelpy Blue when the sea pony enters the room, and she gives a nod and says, "Ah, hello Kelpy. Glad to see again." She adds a little circle to Kelpy's name, and then turns back to Turbo and Rave, waiting for theirs. She also checks the clock, and realises she's about 1 minute and 42 seconds past schedule. Better get their names quick then start teaching, regardless whether she had a full class or not.

((Anypony is still free to join though, regardless of when. But you will be marked late! Shame on you.))

Silver Rose slips into the classroom, hoping she wasn't too horribly awfully late. She takes a seat next to Kelly, if a bit worriedly.

Rave waves a hoof. "I'm Rave and this is Turbo. Looks like Silver Rose is kinda late too." He says simply

Turbo waves. "Hi Silver~"

Image: "Appreciate Rave, noticed. 2 minute 3 seconds late. Write name please.", she says to Rave, then Silver Rose as she walks in.
She marks down Turbo and Rave in the same fashion, with a little circle, before placing the attendance list down in front of Silver Rose so she could write her name, while Shinula started the class because they were late!

She clears her throat silently, before pulling up an expandable rod, and pointing to the board. The top left of the board precisely. Clearly she planned on going through the whole mess in order.
"Class, listen. Starting lesson. Not know previous knowledge of all students, presume varying. For efficiency, made notes, in advanced. Will read out, for reinforcement. Suggest copy down to paper too. Have spare paper, and writing implements, on desk. If have question, race hoof."

She then starts to read everything out, rather quickly too as there was only so much time in a lesson, and she wanted to make sure the class learned as much as they possible could in that time. As she read, she only looked back to the board occasionally, having most of the information sitting neatly on her brain ready for discussion. It didn't occur to her, that just maybe all this might be a little too advanced, and fast for the students to absorb.

Kelpy blinked. And blinked. What was she saying? Was this the wrong class? And how was she going to take notes? She couldn't, so she just did what all seaponies do when they need to learn something. She closed her eyes and listened intently. She was sure all the information she was getting would make sense.

Kelly had finished her drawing of Silver Spoon being eaten by a dragon and stuffed it in her saddle. She took a new paper and a pen when Shinula had told her to take one and started copying what she said even if it was difficult with the speed she was reading everything out. She might not understand all of it but she could always ask Mom to explain it later.

Cherry Blossom slips into the classroom and does her best to sneak towards the closest seat, she may think she's being all smart as she crawls closer and closer, her chest all the way against the ground. It'd probably be effective but her tail is sticking up over the row of chairs in clear view of the teacher. After a minute or so of what she thinks is some real awesome sneaking she finally pulls herself into her seat, wherever that happens to be, and takes a notebook and pencils out of her saddle bags. Here came another boring day of staring at the wall.

((OOC: Insomnia yay! Also, ignore the change in Icon. She's not smiling. Why do I even put that there...))

Image: Shinula stopped for a moment, and looked between her students:

Kelpy Blue seemed to have her eyes closed and Shinula wasn't sure if the sea pony was sleeping. Apparently not, but it would be difficult to see the board like that, and she wasn't taking notes either. Hopefully she had a good memory.
"Ah, Kelpy is tired? If not, suggest open eyes. Easier, if read and listen. Also suggest take notes."

Someponies like Kelly didn't seem to be keeping up with the notes so well, but at least they were working very hard, whereas someponies, particularly some in Silver Spoon's group, didn't seem to be paying attention at all and were instead pre-occupied with other things like talking.

Shinula tilted her head, wondering if she should change tactics, before turning and watching Cherry Blossom enter the room. Eventually after the filly had sat down, she said:
"Ah, Cherry late. Miss important information. Not worry, will explain again. Also, mark name on attendance list, after Silver Rose. Also, refrain from crawling on floor."

She moves her pointer back to the top-left of the board again, looking ready to start the already long lecture again, but then pauses, and decides this would a be good opportunity.
"Ah, perhaps, quick question. Test memory. Anypony, explain, briefly, stereoisomerization." Raise hoof to answer. If can answer, need not start again."
She then remembered some of her teaching notes, and added: "Ah, also, correct answer, earn-" She paused to look at a note "-ah, incentive. Prize."
The book she read suggested gold star stickers, so she had brought some, but somehow that didn't feel like enough. Who'd want little shiny stickers? So she brought some additional items too. Hopefully this didn't count as bribery.

Kelpy looked crestfallen and slunk into her mobilizer a little. How could she say that she was learning when it looked like she was asleep? Nopony would believe her, so she hung her head.

Silver Spoon tried to pay attention... for a few minutes. She then put her notes under a clean sheet of paper and folded it in half, tearing off a small section. She wrote a note and began the process of passing it to Kelpy, starting by mouthing it over to Cherry Blossom, "Pass it to the fish...!" She whispered quietly.

Kelly quickly started on rereading her notes searching for the part about stereoisomerization. When she found it she raised a hoof and answered directly afterwards. "Stereoiso...isomerization is isomerization resulting in different spatial arrangement of atoms without any differences in connect... connectivity or bond multi... plicity between isomers." She did her best to read what Shinula had dictated before. She looked at her hoping it was good enough.

Image: Shinula tilted her head slightly at Kelpy Blue. She walked over and bent down a little towards her and said,
"Ah, is perhaps Kelpy not feeling well? If problem, tell Shinula, will help."

She then stepped back from Kelpy, and noticed out of the corner of her eye, Silver Spoon passing notes. She didn't do anything to stop this though, and in fact approved of it silently. As far as she could see, the filly was sharing notes, which were surely about the information being taught. Sadly she didn't hear the whisper though.

She looked then to Kelly, and listened, before saying,
"Ah, yes. Notice, have trouble pronouncing words. Not problem, suppose. As long as understanding process. Earn incentive prize. Have gold sticker. May collect additional prize after class."
She took one of the tacky little gold stars, and place it down on Kelly's desk, still stuck to it's back paper.

She looked to the class in general and says,
"Ah, class understand yes? If not understand any concept, please raise hoof. Will explain. Not problem if not understanding. Here to learn."

Cherry grumbled as she was declared late, she'd been under the impression that she just pulled a really slick move. Turns out that zebra was pretty attentive. But whatever, all she had to do was stare at a wall and wait for lunch to roll around, whenever that would come about. Though, her staring was quickly cut short by Silver Spoon. Of course, being the filly she is, she reads the note before passing it on to Kelpy. Not caring too much about what it had to say.

Kelpy looked at Shinula and then the note. "C-Can I explain it w-when everypony leaves...?" She asks Shinula meekly. She takes the note and, knowing she would not be able to read it, passes it to Shinula and whispers. "I cannot read, Miss Shinula...."
